Some of the plants will make very large shrubs and should be tied to an H-shaped trellis to form a pleasing shape. Other moss shrubs are large but upright and may be kept in line with a stake at the center of the bush.

Salet (Lacharme, 1854) is our only autumnal Moss rose. It is thought to be of Damask derivation or Damask cross, as it bears in branched clusters in a scheme of threes bearing many bracts. The moss is clear green on calyx, sepals, and stems. The bloom is large and full, of a fine pink color with deeper pink center, fading off to a lilac-pink.
